The oval body is remarkably compressed to make a convex dorsal and a concave or flat ventral side. The swimming flagellum is as long as a cell containing a contractile vacuole in the anterior region, and the other trailing is nearly twice as long as it. (ref. ID; 3497)

Descriptions


Bodo designis Skuja, 1948 (ref. ID; 4872) reported author and year? (ref. ID; 4975, 7051)

Descriptions

Cell length about 7.5 um, range 4.8-14.8 um. Cell elliptical, usually slightly wider posteriorly, with a subapical indentation from which two unequal flagella emerge. The cell is plastic, although it mostly retains the elliptical shape. The anterior flagellum is about the length of the cell or slightly shorter, and points forward with the tip curved. The acronematic posterior flagellum is about twice the cell length. Swimming and skidding cells rotate around their longitudinal axis and this is one of the most useful diagnostic features. The posterior and rotates with greater excursion than the front end and the trailing posterior flagellum follows in sinusoidal curves. Common. (ref. ID; 4872)

Remarks

Cells usually move close to a surface and feed with the anterior flagellum wrapped around the anterior end of the cell. This characteristic is shared with B. saliens. Despite occasional similarities of movement with B. saliens, B. designis can be identified because of its consistent rotational swimming and skidding, its more developed rostrum and the orientation of the anterior flagellum. Morphology and ultrastructure described in detail by Eyden (1977). (ref. ID; 4872)
B. designis is a very common and often abundant organism in marine, freshwater as well as soil sites. This species found in highly contrasting environments apparently can be assigned to the same morpho species. SSU rRNA Gene analysis. (ref. ID; 7051)

Measurements

The sizes ranges have been reported by 7-11 um (Skuja 1948), 7-12.7 um by Eyden (1977), 7-15 um by Larsen & Patterson (1990), 5.5-8 um by Patterson et al. (1993), and 8-15 um by Vors (1992). (ref. ID; 4872)

Bodo saliens Larsen & Patterson, 1990 (ref. ID; 4872)

Descriptions

Observed frequently, average length 7.2 um. Appearance entirely consistent with description in Larsen & Patterson (1990). Cell body somewhat lanceolate in form and inflexible. Anterior flagellum directed forwards with a single curve, posterior flagellum typically directed straight behind the cell. Swimming motion frequently in rapid darts in straight lines. (ref.

Remarks

Bodo saliens was generally identified because its rapid darting movement. The tip of the anterior flagellum is usually curved away from the substrate. (ref. ID; 4872)

Descriptions

The kidney-shaped body is typically 5-8 um long and 2-5 um wide, with two unequal flagella which arise from an anterior flagellar pocket. Bodo saltans may attach to the substratum by the tip of its trailing flagellum, which is 10-15 um long; in this attached mode the anterior flagellum creates feeding currents while the cell swings and jerks erratically around the attachment point of the trailing flagellum. The flagellate also swims free of the substrate, being propelled and rotated around its longitudinal axis by the shorter flagellum while the longer flagellum remains passive and trailing. The capture of bacteria prey by B. saltans; The mastigonemes of the anterior flagellum appear to propel particles towards the cytostome as the flagellate performs sweeping movements, and coiling movements of the circumbuccal lappets around the cytostomal region capture the prey which is then transported to the cytopharynx. The cytopharynx is supported by eight microtubules which extend dorsally beyond the kinetoplast and are thought to be involved in ingestion. (ref. ID; 3644)
